This is my third painting of a fishes head to go with the last one and the first one and again it seems to be the background that's critical. This one started orange which looked wrong, despite the protests of my colour wheel. So I changed it to a mid yellow tint. Still too strong, I washed it out further to off white.
And when I catch it just off the centre of my vision, that eye just bulges right out at me which is really cool.
